Boykin has been accused of assaulting his girlfriend, Shabrika Bailey, and breaking her jaw in an altercation last Tuesday.
Bailey told WFAA’s Kevin Reese that the former TCU quarterback choked her until she blacked out, and that she woke up in a puddle of blood. She said that Boykin initially asked her to come up with a lie to cover up the incident.
Police confirmed to WFAA that Boykin is under investigation for the incident.
Boykin and Bailey were arrested together in 2017 after crashing a car into a building. Bailey alleges that this incident was also the result of a domestic assault, and that Boykin choked her unconscious while she was driving the car.
In college, Boykin was arrested for assaulting a police officer while in San Antonio to play in the Alamo Bowl. He was suspended from the team and did not play in what would’ve been his final collegiate game.
He signed with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent and appeared in five games with the team, all in 2016. Boykin spent 2017 on the Seahawks’ practice squad, and signed a reserve/future contract with the team in January 2018.
